Lesson 4: Setting Up Your Website

Yesterday we got your website built. Today we are going to get your website’s settings all sorted, including setting up the essential plugins.

STEP 1: Watch the Video Tutorial

This video will walk you through everything you need to do to get your website set up:

Video Tutorial Set Up Your WebsiteWATCH VIDEO: Setting Up Your Website

UPDATE: Since that video was made, Akismet has started charging a fee to use its plugin. Instead, your website will come with a different anti-spam plugin installed called WP Spamshield.

STEP 2: Set Up Your Website

Once you have watched the video, go through the steps to set up your website. Alternatively, you may want to follow along and do the steps at the same time as you watch the video. Whatever works best for you.

Okay, that’s it for today. Keep an eye out for lesson 5 tomorrow, where I will show you how to get your website ready for SEO…

All the best,
Marcus.
